According to the World Health Organization, there are more than 350 million people all over the world with depression. With that staggering statistic, it is highly probable that we will all interact at some point with someone experiencing a bout with depression. With that probability in mind, the very people you would not expect to be experiencing depression, such as friends, family, co-workers, and even your boss, will be the ones fighting it.

As a psychotherapist, it is crucial to disclose that in my years of experience working with individuals and even marriages experiencing depression, one of the most devastating aspects of dealing with depression is the stigma and negative criticism that comes from others. Furthermore, people may not even know that their behaviors and comments are being negative or hurtful and sometimes even make the depression feel worse.

With this in mind, here are 20 simple things we can remember when interacting with those that may be having a fight with depression. Any one of these points will not only help with the stigma surrounding depression, but may even help the individual dealing with depression.

1. They are strong in character
In a recent Tedx talk, psychiatrist and philosopher, Dr. Neel Burton explains that depression can represent a deeper search for meaning and significance in life. A person experiencing depression can be seen as working to make sense of life and trying to achieve more, fix more and improve more. Moreover, depression can be a way of preparing a better and even healthier future for ourselves and those around us. Dr. Burton goes on to mention that some of the most influential and inspirational people have dealt with depression such as, Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill. Their search for peace, happiness and peace led their hearts and minds into the pit of depression, but they ended up changing the course of history.

It takes immense will and transparency to acknowledge the presence of depression, but it also pushes people to create answers in the darkest moments in life. In conclusion, depression can take people into the deep woods of our souls and help clear out any unneeded weeds, or shrubs that may be hiding the beauty of life. It is not an act of fear, cowardliness, or ignorance.

2. They love it when you reach out to them unexpectedly
I believe that one of the biggest assumptions of someone dealing with a bout of depression is that they want to be left alone. Although that could seem true at times, it is a dose of healthy social medicine when a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor drops by to say hello. One growing theory about the root of depression in our society is the lack of social relationships in our communities and even in our families. There is a constant dose of emptiness and disconnection in our everyday interactions due to overworking, television and technology. People managing depression need more company, more friends, more people reaching out to them, and more people wanting to spend time with them, not the opposite.

The next time you find yourself thinking about someone that is going through a depressive state, think of a nice, engaging and friendly act you can show them, instead of choosing to stay away from them. If we use the example of Jesus, He was always with people. To take it further, Jesus chose to spend time with trusted associates and not be alone too often. In fact, it was when He was alone that Satan chose to tempt him the most.

Consider your loved ones and friends that are experiencing depression as a needing you and your presence more than ever. It is interesting to think about the times when I was growing up and my mother would always make it a point to lean on her sisters and brother during times of trouble or loneliness. Family and community is a natural remedy for depression. Let’s start to use it more often.

Mother Teresa put it very well, “The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved.”

3. They do not want to burden anyone
Only a depressed individual understands how hard it is to hide their feelings and thoughts from others to avoid being shamed. One characteristic of a person dealing with depression is that they are keenly aware of themselves, their thoughts, their feelings and the behavior of others towards them. The weight that depression can bring upon a person is enough to bury them for a day – the burying of those around them is not on the to-do list.

Unfortunately, individuals fighting depression may push to be alone because they do not want to impact anyone negatively. Although this may not always be the case, depressed loved ones desire to manage their depression successfully and not allow it to touch anyone ever so slightly. This can be a paradoxical situation because being alone can actually exacerbate the symptoms of depression.

Depression can make someone feel as if they’re a burden to the world, especially to those around them. They are not seeking attention, nor want any coddling or rose-colored glasses handed to them. It is a valuable insight to recognize that managing their depression effectively is the most important goal of a depressed individual, not causing anyone any burdens or pain. If they do happen to hurt you or offend you, remember that they are not the enemy – their depression is the true enemy. Tell your depressed loved one that you accept them fully, unconditionally, and remind them of any and all positive traits you love about them.

4. They are not “broken” or “defective”
The human body is a complex machine. It is the oldest organism on Earth and we still do not know how to fully prevent it from breaking down. Still more complex though is the human brain and it’s many structures and functions. Although the cause of some forms of depression are not fully known or understood, many of us make the assumption that a depressed individual is defective, or flawed. The quality of the person is not correlated with the diagnosis of depression. Much like having a big chin, being overweight, or having a lisp is a characteristic without a given or specific cause, depression can come about in a person’s life for many reasons. It is not indicative of a broken or defective person.

The most helpful thing you can do is continue to value the depressed individual and continue to see them as whole, strong, and valuable.

5. They are natural philosophers
Individuals living with depression have many questions and opinions about life, about happiness and about their significance on Earth. It is not enough to simply make money, or launch a successful career. It is not enough to simply live the “American” dream. It is not enough to simply live in the present and hope it all works out. Depression has a funny way of making your perspective broader and more inclusive.

Depressed individuals would love to make the world a better and more just place. They would love to have answers to all of life’s challenges and then would like to share that knowledge with as many people as possible. At times, this inquisitiveness can be an enemy, since it will create your questions than there are answers.

So, recognize that at their core, depressed individuals are intelligent, inquisitive, curious and creative. This is a positive, not a negative.

6. They are fighting hard against depression and appreciate lots of support
In the biggest fight of their lives, depressed individuals need cheerleaders, not bullies. It is in the darkest moments that friends can become angels and angels become lifesavers – literally. You will have a choice at some point in your life to be a lifesaver or a lifetaker. Be a lifesaver. Give the gift of acceptance, help, encouragement and presence.

7. They like opportunities for fun and laughter
What’s the opposite of depression? Mania! It is a proven scientific phenomenon that laughter is good for the soul and the mind. Depressed individuals function the same way. I always like to remember the Jerry Seinfeld episode where Jerry has a sick friend in the hospital and tries to do his “set” to cheer him up and make him laugh.

Well, he ends up killing his friend because he made him laugh too hard. Don’t worry – you won’t hurt your depressed loved ones or friends with your humor and laughter. Dish it out and dish it out often.

8. They are sensitive to other people’s feelings and actions
Depressed individuals care – and they care a lot. They care about how you feel, how you see them, how you see yourself and what others need. It may be that they care too much! Some of the most caring people I have ever met are people that suffer from some sort of depression. Let them know what you need and what you do not need.

Set boundaries with them that are respectful, clear and considerate. Also, ask about what their needs and wants are and let them know what you are capable of giving, or not giving. There is nothing better than a sound relationship based on healthy communication and boundaries.

9. They should be treated respectfully
There is a negative stigma attached to dealing with depression. And, it’s not the depressed individual doing the stigmatization. It is society. I cannot repeat this enough – reducing the stigmatization will help alleviate the societal effects of depression. Respect is a value much more than it is an act. If it was an act, I would rather pay for it, than expect it and not receive it. Respect involves seeing beyond the depressed individual and seeing the whole person.

Depression has the ability to mask many other positive and truly remarkable qualities of a person. Do not let depression lie to you and lie to your loved one. Celebrate what you don’t see initially by seeking out the goodness of those suffering with this tough illness.

根据世界卫生组织的统计,全世界有3亿5000万多人患有抑郁症。有了这个惊人的统计数字,我们很可能会在某个时刻与经历过抑郁症的人互动。考虑到这种可能性,那些你不希望经历抑郁症的人,比如朋友、家人、同事,甚至是你的老板,都是与之斗争的人。
 
作为一个心理学家,这是至关重要的披露在我多年的经验与个人甚至婚姻经历抑郁症的工作,一个对付抑郁症最严重的方面是耻辱和负面的批评来自他人。此外,人们甚至不知道他们的行为和评论是消极的或有害的,有时甚至使抑郁情绪更糟。
 
考虑到这一点,以下是我们可以记住的20个简单的事情:与那些可能与抑郁症作斗争的人交流。这些观点中的任何一个都将有助于抑郁的污名,甚至有助于个体应对抑郁。
 
1。他们性格坚强。
在最近的一次TEDx演讲,精神病学家和哲学家,Neel Burton博士解释说,抑郁能代表人生的意义和意义更深的搜索。一个经历抑郁症的人可以被看作是努力生活的意义,努力实现更多,修复更多,改善更多。此外,抑郁症可以为我们自己和周围的人创造一个更好甚至更健康的未来。Burton博士接着提到,一些最有影响力和鼓舞人心的人处理了抑郁症,如亚伯拉罕·林肯和温斯顿邱吉尔。他们寻求和平、幸福和和平,使他们的心和思想陷入沮丧的深渊,但最终改变了历史的进程。
 
承认抑郁的存在需要巨大的意志力和透明度,但它也促使人们在生命中最黑暗的时刻创造答案。In conclusion, depression can take people into the deep woods of our souls and help clear out any unneeded weeds, or shrubs that may be hiding the beauty of life. 它不是恐惧,行为懦弱,或无知。
 
2。他们喜欢你意想不到地向他们伸出援助之手。
我认为,一个应对抑郁症的人最大的假设之一就是,他们想一个人呆着。虽然有时这似乎是真的,但当朋友、爱人或邻居来打招呼时,这是一剂健康的社交良药。我们社会中关于抑郁根源的一个日益增长的理论是我们的社区甚至家庭中缺乏社会关系。有一个恒定的剂量的空虚和断开,在我们的日常生活中由于过度工作,电视技术。抑郁症患者需要更多的陪伴,更多的朋友,更多的人接触他们,更多的人想和他们在一起,而不是相反。
 
下一次当你发现自己在思考一个处于抑郁状态的人时,想想你能给他们一个好的、吸引人的、友好的行为,而不是选择远离他们。如果我们用Jesus的例子,他总是和人在一起。为了更进一步,Jesus选择了与信任的同事相处,而不是太孤独。事实上,正是当他独自一人时,Satan最想诱惑他。
 
考虑你的亲人和朋友,他们正在经历沮丧,比以往任何时候都更需要你和你的存在。想一想我成长的时候是多么的有趣,我母亲总是会在困难或孤独的时候,让我的兄弟姐妹们依赖她。家庭和社区是治疗抑郁症的天然药物。让我们开始更经常地使用它。
 
特瑞莎修女说得很好,“最可怕的贫穷是孤独和不被爱的感觉。”
 
三.他们不想给任何人带来负担。
只有抑郁的人明白隐藏自己的感情和思想是多么困难,以免被羞辱。一个人对待抑郁的一个特点是他们敏锐地意识到自己,他们的思想,他们的感受和他人对他们的行为。抑郁能给一个人带来的重量足以埋葬他们一天——埋葬他们周围的人不在待办事项清单上。
 
不幸的是,与抑郁作斗争的人可能会独自一人,因为他们不想对任何人产生负面影响。尽管情况并非总是如此,但沮丧的爱人渴望成功地控制自己的抑郁情绪,而不让它如此轻微地影响到任何人。这可能是一种自相矛盾的情况,因为独处实际上会加重抑郁症的症状。
 
抑郁会让人觉得自己是世界的负担,尤其是对周围的人。他们不是在寻找
